Envoy Partnership has been engaged by Rinat Akhmetov Foundation to conduct the first social value study of a humanitarian aid intervention. The study explores the impact of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation’s Food Aid Initiative in the Donbass region of Ukraine.
- The humanitarian aid initiative provided food to nearly 1 million people, and benefited 3.5 million people in total,
- 72% of those supported would not have been able to feed themselves and their families without the food aid,
- 96% of recipients said that the food aid made them feel not forgotten by the outside world. Overall, recipients’ well-being increased by 9%. This is a substantial improvement, given that beneficiaries were still living in a conflict zone that is facing huge challenges.
- Over USD 1 billion of social value was created for the people of Donbass.
